People's poetry

Jacqueline Jackson presents

Untitled Document unalloyedpleasure poem #2  
 
a while ago I spoke too soon
there are many unalloyed pleasures
in this life add in that first painful
scrunch yes that’s a pleasure of a
baby’s jaws clamping down on the
taut nipple of the sore and swollen
breast then the gush of milk into
the eager mouth the babe may choke
a moment but quickly recovers and
gets into the rhythm from then on
its pure bliss for both sides of
the equation I always felt ultimate
virtue nursing and reading for hours
secure in the knowledge I was doing
absolute good in this world dishes
and dusting be damned you guys
are missing out on this one sorry
